Publisher and Date:(Scientific Technical Research Council Turkey-Tubitak, 2011)Histone lysine-specific demethylase (LSD1) is involved in a wide range of epigenetic processes and plays important roles in gene silencing DNA transcription DNA replication DNA repair and heterochromatin formation. Its active site shows a resemblance to those of 2 homologous enzymes monamine oxidase A and B (MAO-A and MAO-B.) In the present work starting from suitable scaffolds and generating thousands of structures from them 10 potential inhibitors were obtained with structural and physicochemical ...
Publisher and Date:(SPRINGER WIEN, 2013)Monoamine oxidases (MAO) A and B are flavin adenine dinucleotides containing enzymes bound to the mitochondrial outer membranes of the cells of the brain liver intestine and placenta as well as platelets. Recently selective MAO-B inhibitors have received increasing attention due to their neuroprotective properties and the multiple roles they can play in the therapy of neurodegenerative disorders. This study was based on 10 scaffolds that were selected from more than a million lead compounds in the ...
